Well I mighjt get a clue that I should either
check my sources and/or provide some proof to back up my allegations
that someone was OSA or I would apologize and shut up about it. I
certtainly wouldn't make a webpage which would just confirm how
clueless, or vindictive I was.

"Empathy" does not mean that one should condone something that is
wrong. That's the same old argument that has been trotted out many
times for Minton and Brooks. I can understand why Minton & Brooks did
what they did.....and I can even feel sympathy for them.....but that
does not mean I should condone what they have done for Rinder, what they
are doing for Rinder and what they will, no doubt, continue to do for
Rinder until he says: "You're free to go".

If more people had had more real empathy and sympathy for Minton, they
should have told him he was on the wrong path a long time ago.

Telling Armstrong he has shot himself in the foot with his asinine OSA
webpage does not mean people do not understand why he did it or even
that they have not had the same kind of feelings or inclination
themselves at some point. I think it's pretty clear why Armstrong
made such a webpage.

And if you can't see or admit it, I can feel empathy and especially
sympathy for you, but you're wrong in condoning Armstrong's & Lerma's
OSA webpages
and you are doing them (and all critics) a disservice.
